What a Weekend!

We had an awesome, but busy weekend. It all started out with Todd doing the Monster Adventure Race again.

They had a 3 person team this year and they did great. This was their 5th year doing this and had their best time yet, 8 hours, 22 minutes. Long day to you and me, huh?? They had biking, running, kayaking, orienteering, sand bag carry, and various obstacle courses to name a few. I was able to come down for the obstacle course in the morning with the boys and snap a few pictures.

Here they are coming in from part of their run. Todd is giving Aiden a "high five" as Drew watches them.

Here's Todd going across the bottom of the ladder....all 3 of them had to do it.
Here they are taking off on their bikes after they finished the obstacle course.

The afternoon brought us soccer and more soccer. Here are a few pictures from Noah's game. I didn't make it to Drew's because of preparations for my mom's birthday party but his team won and he scored a point. I hope to get pictures at his game this weekend.

My brother and my mom (with Aiden making himself comfortable on Grandma's lap) with their birthday cakes. Mom's bday was friday and Nate turned 23 on Saturday.

Ahh, memories of the old days. Cousins and aunts and uncles playing Red Rover, Lemonade, and Red Light, Green Light. It was so fun watching them all. It brought back all the memories of playing those games when I was little.

Aiden and Ty sat and played this game together for the longest time at the end of the night. Not a single argument was heard, it was so precious.

Sunday we went to Riverfest and met up with Matt, Beth and the kids. We looked at some awesome crafts, ate awesome food, got our picture taken, and the kids made picture frames at the library booth.

We finished off our afternoon playing on the playground. Then we headed home for naps. What an exhausting weekend but we loved every minute of it. Fun, family, perfect weather, and good food!
